Haunted by her best friends disappearance, always practical Rowan Quaide lives a life of cold logic. As an intelligence analyst, her world is ruled by who has the best strategy and Ro's reasoned control makes her Queen.
A Chance encounter with a man from her past stretches the bounds of reason and throws her into a game of dark deception and danger. With the past creeping from her nightmares into her reality. Ro pits herself against the monster determined to destroy the new love she's found.
As the intel gets more and more disturbing and events begin to spin out of control, she must rely one her instincts and cling to an unreasonable truth, or allow logic to tear her apart.
